On Tuesday the Chicago Blackhawks assigned forward Victor Ejdsell to Rockford.
Chicago acquired Ejdsell in the trade that sent forward Ryan Hartman to Nashville at the trade deadline. Listed at 6-4 and 214 pounds, the 22-year-old forward shoots right-handed. He scored 20 goals in 50 games for HV71 Jonkoping in the Swedish Hockey League this season.
Ejdsell signed his two-year, entry-level contract with Nashville last summer; he has a $833,750 cap hit through the 2018-19 season.
